Date: Saturday, 4 December 2021
Kick-off at 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET
Venue: WWK Arena.

Augsburg has built their reputation as a Bundesliga staple since their first-ever season in the top-flight in the 2011/12 season. They might very well play in the second division next season if they fail to get back to winning ways. Bochum on the other hand following their 2. Bundesliga winning campaign last season has just about managed to stay clear of the relegation zone. Read our Preview, Predictions, and Betting Tips with Analysis here.

Augsburg vs Bochum Head-to-head

The teams have met twice in the 2010/11 season in 2. Bundesliga Bochum won their away fixture 0-1 having lost the home fixture 0-2 earlier in the season. Their most recent clash in the DFB Pokal this October ended 3-2 in favour of Bochum at home after extra time.

Analysis

Bochum will go into the match off the back of a 2-1 win against 4th place Freiburg at home. On the other side of the match, the hosts in their preceding fixture held Hertha Berlin to a 1-1 draw on the road.

Markus Weinzierl has not really been able to set things right since he took over as manager of Augsburg in April. With just 3 wins in the season, they are in the relegation playoffs spot having managed a further 4 points through draws. 

While Die Unabsteigbaren has suffered damaging losses against the top teams in Germany, they have delivered with performances worthy of staying up in the Bundesliga. Converting their narrow losses to draws could work wonders for the club as they are just 3 points clear of the relegation zone in 13th place. 

Augsburg vs Bochum Prediction

Certainly, the hosts have struggled this season and as a result, battling relegation. On the contrary, they have been impressive at home being undefeated in the last 5 home games with 4 wins. The away side meanwhile has won just once on the road in league matches and are less likely to challenge for points.

Bochum have failed to score in 4 of their 7 away league games while their opponents have conceded just 3 goals in the last 5 home games. A clean sheet for Augsburg is not a bad shout.
